    This is a nice recipe to make and have on hand for holiday time. These treats store well, and they look and taste great. I used pecans instead of walnuts since that's what I had on hand.

    Just made these with my youngest. They turned out well, though we used pecans instead of walnuts. Very fudgy! I a not a huge chocolate fan but all my boys seem to enjoy them. So a winner here.

    Finely chop the walnuts and instead of orange juice add 1/3 c. rum or bourbon! Yummy!

    These are very good; should the conf. sugar been sifted? I had a bowl of chocolate powder. The only way a ball could be formed was with warmth of my hands and unable to roll them round and round to make a smooth ball.
